I hope they don’t waste anytime on this feature, they have so much to do and so little capital and staff to do it that a distraction like V2H could kill them. If you want backup for your house there are two better choices, a propane generator (I I have as 20KW Kohler) or solar panels and a power wall. My Kohler can power my house for almost a week with the two tanks that I have and if the outage goes longer I can have the tanks refilled. I got it after having two five day outages in a particularly bad winter several years ago. If you live in an area which gets a lot of sun then solar is a good solution, it will pay for itself eventually and it makes you independent of grid failures. I wouldn’t want to power my house from my car, I want to be able to go somewhere during a power outage and a drained battery makes that impossible. Also disconnecting the car to go somewhere will remove power from your furnace. It’s the lack of heat that makes power outages so uncomfortable.
